Berlin (dpa) - International sports federations are looking into the process of checking the eligibility of Russian athletes to compete at the Rio de Janeiro Games after the International Olympic Committee refrained from a blanket ban on the country.

Athletes must meet strict anti-doping criteria but federations also have little time to make their decision ahead of next week‘s opening ceremony in Brazil.

- ARCHERY: The ruling body World Archery on Monday said that the three Russian athletes - Tuiana Dashidorzhieva, Ksenia Perova and Inna Stepanova - are eligible to compete in Rio. World Archery president Ugur Erdener is a member of the IOC executive board which reached Sunday‘s decision.

- ATHLETICS: The IAAF has extended last year‘s suspension of the Russian federation and denied entry requests from 67 Russian athletes for Rio, rulings which have been upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The only eligible Russian is United States-based long jumper Darya Klishina.

- BADMINTON: The ruling body BWF is yet to officially comment on the IOC ruling. Four Russians are qualified for Rio.

- BOXING: AIBA said it is reviewing on a case-by-case basis the doping record of the 11 Russian boxers qualified for Rio. Its final list of eligible Russians to be presented to the IOC "in due course."

- CANOEING: The ICF has barred five qualified Russians from competing in Rio as they were implicated in the McLaren report. Nine other Russians remain eligible for Rio, pending IOC approval.

- CYCLING: The UCI is yet to comment on the IOC ruling but a decision on the 18 qualified Russians is expected within the next days.

- EQUESTRIAN: The FEI says none of the five qualified Russian riders has been implicated in the area of doping and that all should be ready to compete in Rio.

- FENCING: The ruling body FIE said Wednesday all 16 qualified Russians were eligible to compete in Rio.

- GOLF: Russia has one golfer in the Rio field, Maria Vitalevna Balikoeva, whose eligibility is being assessed by the IGF.

- GYMNASTICS: The ruling body FIG will establish a "pool of Russian eligible athletes" and then forward it for final approval "as soon as possible." No Russian gymnast has been implicated in the McLaren report and all 21 Russian gymnasts are expected to be in Rio.

- HANDBALL: Russia‘s women‘s team is qualified, and the IHF said it will conduct out-of-competition tests on all players before reaching a decision. "The International Handball Federation would like to highlight the full cooperation with the IOC and WADA and that we will do our utmost efforts to provide full transparency and to keep handball clean," it said.

- JUDO: IJF president Marius Vizer, who is said to be a friend of Russian President Vladimir Putin, said even before the IOC ruling that "the presence of Russian athletes is very important, as the Russian Judo Federation is a prominent member of the International Judo Federation, with a notable contribution to the development of judo, Russian judo playing a great role in the history of our sport." The 11 Russian judo athletes are expected in Rio as the IJF said Sunday that 84 per cent of its competitors have been tested.

- MODERN PENTATHLON: The governing body UIPM said Maksim Kustov and Ilia Frolov, who was listed as a back-up, are ineligible having been named in the McLaren report. The three other registered Russian athletes are allowed to compete.

- ROWING: The FISA had previously declared Anastasiia Karabelshchikova and Ivan Podshivalov ineligible for Rio because of past doping offences, and Ivan Balandin for being implicated as one of 11 Russians in the McLaren report. A further 19 were later deemed ineligible with only six of the original 28-named team being permitted to go to Rio.

- SAILING: There has been no official statement from World Sailing on the seven Russian sailors but Russian sailing federation spokesman Alexei Zhirov told the Tass news agency Monday that "the international federation has no claims to us and the Russian team will compete in its full composition in Rio. The team is already in Brazil, in combat readiness."

- SHOOTING: All 18 Russian shooters are to compete in Rio, the governing body ISSF has said. The McLaren report listed three Russian cases but these cases were in fact dealt with by the ISSF.

- SWIMMING: Seven Russian swimmers have been declared ineligible by FINA. Of those, world champion Yulia Efimova, Mikhail Dovgalyuk, Natalia Lovtcova and Anastasia Krapivina were earlier withdrawn by Russia while Nikita Lobintsev, Vladimir Morozov, and Daria Ustinova were mentioned in the McLaren report. FINA has set up an ad-hoc commission to look into the eligibility of Russian athletes and will retest all Russian samples from the 2015 worlds in Kazan, Russia.

- TABLE TENNIS: The ruling body ITTF has named the situation after the IOC decision "awkward" because it has to decide on short notice whether the three qualified Russians are clean. A special commission has been set up to clear up the matter.

- TAEKWONDO: There is yet to be a statement from the ruling body ITF on the three qualified Russian athletes.

- TENNIS: Superstar Maria Sharapova is banned over a positive test for Meldonium. But the ITF said as early as Sunday that eight Russian players qualified for Rio can play there because they "have been subject to a rigorous anti-doping testing programme outside Russia," and "meet the relevant requirement of today‘s decision of the IOC Executive Board."

- TRIATHLON: A statement from the ITU on the six qualified Russians is expected within the next days.

- VOLLEYBALL: The FIVB was quoted by the BBC as saying that "Russian athletes have been tested at the same level as all other countries and the majority of the testing analysis of Russian athletes has been conducted outside of Russia."

- WEIGHTLIFTING: The governing body IWF wants "further clarification" from the IOC and WADA before deciding on which Russians can compete in Rio, with a final decision to be made by its executive board. The IWF says some points of the IOC decision "might lead to confusion."

- WRESTLING: The UWW has started a process to validate each of the 17 qualified Russian wrestlers (12 men, 5 women), and requested more information on Russian wrestlers who have been implicated in connection with disappearing positive tests. The Russians have been tested up to four times by laboratories outside Russia but the UWW testing pool for 2016 lists only one woman along with 12 men.
